Subject: RE: BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture?
The reaction of the UK Left Remainers is, as usual, overblown. The State Opening Of Parliament has taken place annually with very few exceptions throughout and since the twentieth century. Last year was one of those exceptions. To not do it again this year would be completely unprecedented, especially as a new Prime Minister will always want to set up his or her own, new, political agenda. That requires a new Queens speech and that requires prorogation. There was no time to do it before the summer holidays, after that is three weeks of Party Conferences. After that is the obvious time to do it.
